A great place to do business

North West Leicestershire is one of the strongest districts in the country for business growth.

According to Experian, we're in the top 20 areas for business growth over the last few years - and in the top five for the potential to grow through exports.

  • We have the right people
  • We’re in the right place
  • We provide the right support
  • We’re investing in local business
  • We’ve got a great track record
  • We’re among the top places in the UK to do business.

Working with our partners we have all the information and advice you need to support the setting up and running of a business - from finding a suitable property, arranging a licence to trade, to meeting legal requirements.

Businesses across the North West Leicestershire district now have access to a new funded business support programme, the Leicestershire Business Advice Service.

Some of these services are provided by partner organisations such as Better Business for All, while many others are the council's own services - such as Health and Safety, Planning, Licensing and Business Rates.
